Dogtown Brown is a tribute to North Little Rock. Embrace what others throw at you – it’ll make you stronger. So it is with our Brown – taking a style more common to ales, we created a Brown but done with a lighter, lager yeast. With notes of malty chocolate, our Brown is something sweet, something smooth and mighty drinkable.

As for one appreciating brown ales, I loved this. Bought a growler of it. Nice dark color. Holds a nice head. Not too bitter. Smells simple. Nice carmel, light chocolate taste. Slightly nutty. I really enjoyed this.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with some amber around the edges, and a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lace. Roast malt, chocolate and a touch of hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, roasted nuts and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Sampled at gabf. Dark brown. Flavor is indstinct and a bit muddled. Kind of swampy. Pethaps nuts and a hint of cocoa.

Pours a ruby red color. Nice mocha colored head that lingers well. Great lacing. Slightly cloudy appearance.

Smells of toffee maybe. Woodsy. Fruity. I can’t quite describe it. But it’s nice. I like it.

Taste is toffee, nutty. It’s bitter on the front, and slightly bitter at the end. It’s different. It’s good. I’m not really picking up a whole lot of cofee, but there is some caramel, or maybe honey.

It’s so very smooth, and bold. It’s also creamy. It’s remarkable really. I’d also say that ’s drinkable. It’s rare to find all of that in a beer. It’s a medium-light mouthfeel. It’s hard to describe really, because there’s so much going on there.

Overall, it’s great. Ba da ba ba bah, I’m loving it! My backyard brewer, knocking it out of the park. Good job! But seriously though, it’s better than I expected.

Light body, but with enough grainy sweet malt to get the job done. Solid brown. Would drink again if handed to me
